@Keiko2012 I’m so sorry AF has turned up. Will you do your BT today after all? It would be good to be able to stop the crinone before the weekend and move on. Dammit, another wtf appointment to sit through. I hate those. Have you had any more thoughts about doing a lap as your next step?
@BecT Glad to hear you’re all good to go – hope AF turns up soon so you can get started!
@Heyside Oh no, I’m so sorry it’s a bfn this round. The lining thing sounds like a tough one to resolve. Has wazza suggested anything else that might help? Viagra could be worth a shot for sure.
Afm, scratch done and dusted for another month. Holy moly, it hurt like an absolute mofo. Maybe even more than last time? Or maybe it was the same and I just blocked out how painful the last one was. Blech. Anyway, I just held my breath and wiggled my toes (FS asked me what I was doing with my feet lol, but I think it helps!) and it was over pretty fast. Phew. Now we wait for AF and get ready to jump back on the rollercoaster.

@MrsChino yep had the blood test already. But couldn't believe I had to have some more Crinone today. Not a pretty sight there... Ugh. Yep I am ready for the lap. Just haven't spoken to FS about that yet. Makes sense really, just to make sure there's nothing going on in there that could interfere. So happy for whatever he needs to do in there, ovarian drilling, do a biopsy and or remove endo if I have some- who knows. Dr K reckons you can have it without many symptoms and it often comes as a surprise when they do the laps. I don't like the idea of recovery and taking more time off work. How long did you take off? Did they keep you overnight?
Am getting a little scared of the 'sorry there's nothing I can do for you' talk... 🙁

@Keiko2012 - In some ways I think I may be best waiting for bt that way if I have a follow up appointment with Warren DH will definitely be back, think I need him there to take everything in as it can all be a blur at times. My lining was 8mm before EPU which is one of the better linings I have had (usually better on a stimulated cycle) but still on the low side. Its my af that always worries me though so light and watery will see what comes of it this time.
@MrsChino - Sorry to hear the scratch was painful but nice to be a step closer hope af shows up soon. Thanks hun, wazza has put me on a lots of meds to increase blood flow but willing to try anything.

Sorry to hear about the scratch @MrsChino. Do they not give you anything. I completely agree with the wiggling of toes - it's meant to distract your brain. Glad it's all done now and hopefully this round will work for you!

@Keiko2012 Yeah, I have stayed in overnight for all my laps so far (PCA, IDC and sequential compression thingies in place). Twice at the Wesley and once at Mater Private (I had a better experience at the Wes in terms of after care ). In terms of time off work, it depends a bit on what they do in there. For my big 4 hour endo resection I took 2 weeks off and definitely needed that long, but for the others I have been ready to go back to work after 8-10 days – still a bit sore, but able to function and get through the day. Mind you, I have a very sedentary desk job. If my work was more physical I reckon 2 weeks would probably be better.

Ugh yuk! PCA, and IDC!!!! 😳 poop. I thought there wouldn't be any of that just a nice lap and a few insertions cuts and home that day. Eek. I'll definitely need to speak to my manager in that case. My job can be pretty hectic some days.

Oh please don't let me scare you @keiko2012! Lots and lots of people have it done as a day case, it's just that I've had a fair bit of stuff done in there each time (the first one was a significant op, the second one also included removal of my appendix and the third one was for my ectopic and endo hunt). So that's just been my experience. At the end of the day it just depends on what happens once they get in there. Honestly, I would say that while it's not fun and you are sore for a while, it's not terrible if you know what I mean? Totally do-able.

Lol thanks @MrsChino. Not scared of it as such. We have heaps of kiddies on the ward that have laps done (usually appendix) but definitely no pca 'a or idc's there. I think it was the IDC bit that got me 😉 after all this going on down there I thought maybe I would get a break with the lap, lol. Time will tell. I'll survive that's for sure 😊 please tell me they didn't ship you to the maternity ward post your ectopic?!

@Keiko2012 I'm so sorry AF arrived and you still need to do crinone ivf is truly heartbreaking and I completely understand your feelings. I think going for the lap is a great idea. I second what MrsChino said about recovery and time off. All of my laps were supposed to be day surgery but I was kept overnight every time as they had to resect a fair bit of endo. My time off work varied from 1 week - 2 weeks - although I worked quite a physical job - childcare!
@Heyside I am so sorry love this thread really needs some good news doesn't it!! I'm glad your DH will be with you for your follow up appt and have everything crossed you can get some more answers/options moving forward. Be kind to yourself.
@MrsChino ouch! I admire your bravery going through that awake! I was put to sleep for both of mine! I'm glad it's all over now - c'mon AF!
AFM - currently in getting intralipids, DP dropped me off out the front but I don't think my body agreed with the 5min walk from the bottom up to the unit after a week of pretty much being bedridden as I've now had further brown spotting - it had pretty much completely stopped. I'm just thankful it's brown and I don't have any cramping...surely that's a good sign? Ah Monday can't come soon enough.
